About This Chapter
Solving and Graphing Inequalities
Are inequalities something you don't fully understand? Perhaps you need to brush up on your skills in this area, or you feel like there's more you need to learn about inequalities. If so, you've come to the right place. We have a range of video lessons that will help you to gain skills and understanding in the area of inequalities.
What is an inequality? Do you know the answer? If not or if you're even slightly unsure, then let us teach you about where they exist in real life. We'll also help you to discover more about 'less than', 'greater than' and 2-variable and 1-variable inequalities. If you yearn to know more, we also cover systems of inequalities and compound inequalities. You may also check out what we have to teach on the topic of absolute value inequalities and set notation. We even provide you with the ability to practice solving absolute value inequalities problems.
If you are having troubles graphing inequalities, then we can help you with that, too. Take a look at what we have to share about how to graph 2-variable inequalities, including practice problems that will ensure that you completely understand the topic. Finally, learn about things like solid line vs. dotted line.
Learning inequalities will be straightforward, accessible, and even fun, thanks to our engaging animated video format. The video lessons are taught by subject matter experts and presented by professional video editors. Thanks for watching!
1. What is an Inequality?
Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!
2. How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities
So an inequality is just an equation with a less than or greater than symbol. But what is the difference between 1 and 2 variable inequalities? What does have a greater than or equal to symbol change? When do you use a number line instead of a coordinate plane? Get those answers here!
3. Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities
In this lesson, we'll explore the conditions of compound inequalities and learn how to express them using set notation and interval notation. Test you knowledge afterward with a short quiz.
4. Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems
If you're already pretty familiar with what inequalities are and just looking for a place to practice your skills, this is the place. This lesson covers topics like 1-variable, 2-variable, compound, and systems of inequalities.
5. How to Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality
Taking two skills and combining them to make a more complicated problem is a classic tactic in mathematics. If you feel confident with absolute values and inequalities, see if you can tackle them with their powers combined here!
6. Solving and Graphing Absolute Value Inequalities: Practice Problems
Solving and graphing absolute value inequalities brings a lot of different skills together in one place. The practice problems in this video will give you a good chance to see more examples of absolute value inequalities but will also test your general algebraic knowledge.
